Musk shares a screenshot of someone asking, ‘what made you quit weed?’
Cannabis seems to be top of mind for the world’s richest man lately.
The meme image garnered the usual mixed bag of responses that accompany a Musk tweet, from explicit photos to comments about how the money in Musk’s $44 billion Twitter deal could be better spent elsewhere.
For his part, Musk seemed unmoved, posting another meme shortly after.
Musk, of course, is no stranger to controversial tweets.
He has found himself embroiled in controversy on numerous occasions, including getting caught in the crosshairs of U.S. regulators.
Musk was reportedly sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) over his infamous “Tesla 420” tweet in 2018.
The suit was prompted after Musk tweeted that he was “considering taking Tesla private at $420,” and added that the funding had already been secured.
That tweet reportedly led to Tesla shares climbing 11 per cent and was tantamount to fraud, according to the lawsuit.
Earlier this year, after his bid for Twitter became public, Musk set his sights on another corporate giant in Coca-Cola.
“Next, I’m buying Coca-Cola to put the cocaine back in,” he tweeted.
As for the Twitter takeover, Musk recently sold $7 billion worth of Tesla shares in case he loses his attempt to walk away from the deal, reports The Guardian.
Twitter has filed a lawsuit against Musk for abandoning the deal while Musk has filed a countersuit claiming the company has not provided enough information about spam accounts and the number of actual users on the platform.
Musk previously said that the platform “has tremendous potential,” adding that he looks “forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”
